As a lender who has been in the business since 1999, I enjoy helping clients choose a solid loan program that is just right for your needs. Whether this is your first home loan, your last, a loan for an investment property or a vacation home, or need to refinance, I would be honored to be your Senior Loan Officer.

Clients can rely on my experience, education, knowledge, and market research to choose a loan that fits their needs now and in the future without feeling pressured to commit.

Our first step is to discuss your needs and for me to share the loan programs that are out there for you. I understand securing a loan can often be a daunting process, but it is my goal to provide you with an experience that answers your questions, eases your mind, and allows you to feel secure in choosing a home loan that fits within your budget and your situation.

Concerned about the different loan choices? Let me explain the benefits of each and assess what makes the most sense for you and your family.

Not sure whether paying points makes sense? We can crunch the numbers together and I can show you how this might impact your finances.

Confused about the process, timing, what paperwork needs to be submitted? Let me ease the burden with guidance and trust that I can ease you through the process.

Self-employed? Recent job or family-life change? Circumstances that might cause you to worry about qualifying? I am a great listener who has experienced clients with many of your same situations and will be happy to listen with patience and without judgment.
